With mobile phone technology advancing at an astonishing rate, it was only a matter of time before 3G technology was implemented into a smartphone screen. The LG Optimus 3D gives users fantastic display quality in stunning 3D, without the need for 3D classes. As well as this impressive attribute, it also boasts the full functionality you would expect from a modern Android smartphone, and comes with plenty of other bells and whistles to keep users entertained and productive.
The handset measures 128.8x 68x 11.9 millimeters and weighs in at a sturdy 168 g. When a user holds the device in their hand it gives them a feeling of premium build quality and sturdiness. The front of the screen is dominated by the generously proportioned 4.3 inch 3D LCD capacitive touchscreen. The pixel resolution is 480x 800, which combined with the ability to display up to 16 million colours and a 3D display results in absolutely stunning display quality of on screen imagery. This really has to be seen to be believed to appreciate how impressive this really is. Naturally, this makes it the perfect device for viewing photos, watching videos, browsing the web and playing games etc. The LG Optimus 3D also boasts the standard gyro, proximity and accelerometer sensors as well as touch sensitive shortcut panel which are found on most Android Smartphones.
Memory wise, the LG Optimus 3D provides 8 GB of internal storage to kick things off. Whilst this provides plenty of capacity for storing multimedia files, apps and documents, a further 32 GB can be attained by utilising the integrated microSD card slot. An entire music collection, large numbers of video files and applications can therefore be kept on the phone at all times.
In order to provide the best Internet browsing experience possible, both 3G (HSDPA, 14.4 Mbps) and Wi-Fi are called upon. Being an Android operated device, the standard package of Google features is included, as well as full Adobe Flash 10.1 support which means that users can enjoy content rich web sites and view embedded multimedia such as videos and games, an attribute that several leading smartphone brands are yet to incorporate. Cellular networks rely on both GPRS and EDGE, also providing the initial means of Internet access when no 3G or Wi-Fi coverage is available. To connect to compatible hardware devices, the LG Optimus 3D also comes with Bluetooth, microUSB and even DLNA, the latter of which allows users to stream multimedia from their phone to a compatible television.
A dual 5 mega pixel digital camera is on hand to take high quality still imagery with impressive ease of use. It operates at a pixel resolution of 2560x 1920 and boasts Autofocus, LED flash and also the ability to shoot 3D footage thanks to two separate cameras which film at different distances. 3D footage is in high definition 720p; however, by filming in standard 2D, users can enjoy immaculate 1080p high definition footage.
A whole host of extra goodies is included as standard in the very attractive package. Numerous multimedia and productivity apps are provided alongside location based services which function based on GPS. A dual core processor adds a whole new level to the user interface of this device providing lightning fast UI speeds, speedy internet browsing, virtually zero lag when using the touchscreen, and instant loading of apps. Android 2.2 is the operating system of choice, however users can upgrade this to the new version, 2.3 (Gingerbread). Of course, the operating system also means users can access over 100,000 apps which are available for download in the Android Market.
The LG Optimus 3D really is the epitome of smartphone technology. It showcases the latest advancements in smartphone technology, and boasts a number of features which are sure to revolutionise the way we use mobile phones.
